The Littlest Hitler is a story written by Ryan Boudinot. In the story The Little Hitler, a young boy who innocently dresses up as Hitler for Halloween faces the consequences (Boudinot 135). The story concerns Davy, a middle student, whose father allows him to dress like Hitler and go to a Halloween party (Boudinot, 136). He learns about a number of dark truths following his encounter with his classmate Lysette dressed as Anne Frank. Cultural riffs like this and fictional witticisms are the basis for Boudinot’s smart, humorous, sharp and heartfelt narratives. In this story, Boudinot verifies himself as a twisted, frightening narrator in his shady and surefooted introduction.
The story The Littlest Hitler has a practically realistic daily American landscape although one where extraordinarily odd things take place (Boudinot, 138). Boudinot has a quite interesting satirical outlook of the culture of America, although his narratives just do not go any place that is actually informative. The sudden twists in Boudinot’s narratives are simply awkward blows for the reader, and not odd clarification (Boudinot, 140). The narrator appears to have pity for Davy, because he is just a teenager and does not know what he is doing by putting on Hitler’s clothes. Davy’s father wants the taboo of Hitler to fade away. However, it is Halloween and people frequently wanted to be scary figures, and this is just what Davy’s father assisted him to do. The father knew that Hitler is a scary man everywhere in the world and that Davy will be easily noticed by his fellow students at school.
Lysette sets the mind of Davy to think. Her attention to Davy makes him think of what he had done. He becomes demoralized. She is the naive girl like Anne Frank while Davy is the bad and frightening guy Hitler (Boudinot, 141). It would not have been much trouble for Davy if Lysette had not worn the costume of Anne Frank. The reality that Davy discovers gets him to cry.
The Most Girl Part of You by Amy Hempel
The Most Girl Part of You is written by Amy Hempel. In the story one views a Big Guy, a type of an attractive lug that has a passion with ice water, as he acts the game of mating with the storyteller (Hempel, 120). The Most Girl Part of You appears to be a random collection of adolescent gaucheries, which turns into a narrative of sexual development as the storyteller is swept off her teenage feet by her impulsive, latently responsive lummox of a pal Jack the Big Guy, a procedure properly settled by an ordinary simile (Hempel, 122). Hempel’s piece of work is certainly on balance (Hempel and JoAnne, 150). She takes the periods and occurrences that people basically face without a second consideration or view and turns them so that they disclose something strange. The author is not wordy, so the story will not be enjoyable for someone who needs intense description of small events.
Hempel’s outlook of the world from the inside out is strong and intriguing (Hempel and JoAnne, 155). The stories often concern grief and sorrow. Every word is chosen cautiously. The sentiments that Hempel’s use of words extract are obvious and strong; they frequently appear to strike a chord of unanticipated and frightening awareness. A positive feature in the Hempel’s piece of work is her sense of liberty. There are strange details that apparently have no reason but they paint the story with realism and make the narrative a real experience (Hempel and JoAnne, 160).
Comparison of the two stories
Both stories are entangled in details of the day-to-day life experience. Hempel is amongst the funniest, grittiest writers in the world, just like Boudinot. The above stories have a sense of humor. The authors take what takes place in the world; distill it down to the most essential, fundamental features and give back a tight, exact gem of a narrative which, in the duration of countable pages, summarizes the whole lives. The stories trigger curiosity. For instance, one wants to know what would happen next when Davy puts on the Hitler’s costume in the story The Littlest Hitler. In the story The Most Girl Part of You, the reader in keen to know why the Big Guy is fixated with the ice water. These stories unite their readers in a holistic manner to nature, the regular things of existence. For instance, the story of the Littlest Hitler reminds the reader of the suffering of the Jewish.
The two stories give a sense of morality. In the story The Littlest Hitler, Davy’s father was somehow mean to let his son go to school dressed in the Hitler’s clothing. The consequence that Davy faced would have been avoided if his father had told him that Hitler was indeed a bad man. The author brings out the sense of humor when he portrays Davy as a naïve teenager who does not know what he is doing.
Both stories have teenagers who try to establish their experience by exploring various opportunities that are availed to them. In this way they discover their abilities and work hard towards attaining their objectives. The authors use creative writing to bring out the real experience of the world. The frightening elements as well as the romantic elements are also illustrated in these stories. For instance, Davy’s Hitler clothes portray him as frightening while the Big Guy depicts his romantic features when he acts the mating game with the storyteller. The two stories depict the fiction feature.
